THE PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE 



Rosenwald High School 
Harlan, Kentucky 



Dear Friends and Patrons of Rosenwald: 

With a growing need for trained men and women in the various fields of tech- 
nical training, both in times of peace and war, there is a great demand for 
secondary school training that will serve as a foundation for this advanced 
training. My experience in school work for the past seven years has enabled 
me to make certain observations. 

One of the reasons why the Negro Youth has found it difficult to advance in 
certain departments of our armed forces, is that his previous school training 
has not supplied sufficient background for such advancement. Few Negro 
schools are equipped with manual training departments, chemistry laborato- 
ries and other necessities for technical training. This reason alone is enough 
to keep our boys and girls from being able to meet the requirements for tech- 
nical work. However, insufficient teachers, over crowded schools and lack of 
parent council are other factors that have prevented our youth from securing 
the proper school background. 

Yet, with the present demands for such training still growing, we find that the 
Negro schools are the only ones that are not being equipped with electrical 
engineering, radio units, mechanical training departments, modern service 
laboratories, courses in aeronautics, and many other facilities. 

I challenge you to see that the future will endow the Negro youth with more 
chances to meet the needs of his country and community.

"FAREWELL, DEAR ROSENWALD" 

(Class Song) 

Sadly comes the time to say "goodbye," to our dear teachers, classmates, too, 
Merrily we sing our parting song, sadly echoes amid the sea of blue. 

CHORUS 

Farewell to thee, Dear Rosenwald, the sweet thoughts of you will always 
remain. 

One fond farewell before we say goodbye, until we meet again. 

2 

Sweet the thoughts we bear with us today, dear mem'ries of the happy past; 
and tho' now we whisper, fare-thee well, yet we know we shall meet again 
at last. 



Fare-thee well for we must now leave thee, do not let the parting grieve thee, 
we can no longer stay here with you, we have to bid all of our friends "adieu." 

Composer— IRENE LEOTA MOORE

CLASS HISTORY OF 44 



By IRENE L. MOORE 

We, the class of '44, began our journey at Rosenwald four years ago. When we 
reverse our minds back to the days that we were recognized as Freshmen, it 
seems that it was only yesterday. While descending the stars to success we had 
our misfortunes. Some had been transferred to other schools, matrimony 
called others. After all we found a faithful few trying to reach the goal. Our 
Freshman year ended. 



Soon we were Sophomores, the versatile class of 1942. Various members be- 
came affiliated with the Red Devils Football Team. The outstanding members 
were, John Hale, Cornelius Jones, Vernell Howton, George Pratt and Richard 
Coleman. We were foi tunate enough to have two "all conference" basketball 
players. They were John Hale and Lawrence McKinley. Our motto then 
was, "GREATER HEIGHTS ARE YET TO BE ATTAINED." Not only did we 
excel) in football but also in Debating, Chorus, Dramatics, Expression, Science, 
Girls Reserve, Kleverctte and many others. 



Then we reached the great Junior Class. The class in which we found our- 
selves "SUPERLATIVE." We did great things under the supervision of Mr. 
E. H. Pierro. He guided us to victory in anything that we attempted. There 
were found in the Junior Class of '43, the one and only Football Captain 
"Cornelius Jones," Basketball Captain, "Lawrence McKinley," Football 
Queen, "I'rene L. Moore," Best Musician, "Thomas McDc .veil," Sweetheart, 
"Bertha Williams," Student Director, "Eddie Sandford,'" Highest Grades, 
"Irene L. Moore," Best Football Player, "Cornelius Jon^s," Girls Reserve 
President, "Irene L. Moore," Band President, "Thomas McDowell," Ping Pong 
Champion, "Thomas McDowell," Student with health honors, "Broadus Jack- 
son," All Conference End, "Richard Coleman," there were more Juniors in the 
War Cabinet than all other classes combined. There were more boys serving 
in the armed forces and taking defense trades than all other classes combined. 
With all of these losses we were still Superlative. 



Our senior year rolled around, the journey was a long and tough one but we 
were still fighting. We were seniors or only twenty-four in number and we 
started this journey with sixty-eight. 

This is the land mark in the history of our lives of the graduating class. 
It marks the fruition of their first milestone.

'WE, Tii ^ SENIORS, SPEAK" 

(Class Poem) 
1. 

We, the Rosenwald graduates of 1944, 

Must now depart from many friends and the school which we adore. 
As each commencement roils around, we always feel quite sad, 
But now that we must leave for good, it hurts us twice as bad. 

2. 

We think of all the fun we've had in ways you couldn't guess, 
Along with all the knowledge gained to guide us to success. 
We think of our professor, who led us all the way, 
And how the various teachers sustained us each day. 

3. 

To all prospective graduates, we say with all our hearts, 
Do all you can to get the most and prove that you're smart. 
This might not seem important now but later you will see, 
That when you waste your time in school you plant a fruitless tree, 

4. 

Through eighty years of frendem the Negro has advanced. 
It's up to us to carry on, so take and use your chance. 
The future generations will all depend on us, 
So if we fail to do our part we do our race unjust. 

5. 

To you we now must say "GOODBYE", to take our stand in life, 

But you will linger in our hearts through happiness and strife, 

We promise you our best success in answer to this call. 

To proudly raise our chest and say, "WE CAME FROM ROSENWALD." 

Composer— A Senior, Cpl. Thomas McDowell, U. S. Army.

CLASS PROPHECY 
By RUTH DAVIS and LESS1E AMOS 

I shall steal into the mysteries of the unknown and tell each member of this 
graduating class where he or she shall be twenty years from now. 

Who is this I see coming up the street? He is riding in a great big magnicifent 
automobile. Now he stops at the bank. He gets out and goes in, he must be 
someone of vast importance. Who can it be? At last he is turning around where 
I can see his face. Why, it is Vernon Langford. By hard work and honesty 
he has become President of a bank. 

Now I see someone at sea. It is a woman. She is standing on the deck of a 
great ocean steamer looking across the waves. A veil partly hides her face, 
but there is something familiar about her. Ah, now I see who it is. Opal Creech 
— her fame as a singer has spread from one end of the world to another. 

The ocean changes: We are carried swiftly to the cold snows of Alaska. What 
is this going ahead of us? An airplane, and the pilot, yes, we see. It is our 
old friend Dallas Blue. He is filling the important work of an air mailman be- 
tween New York and Alaska. Everyday he makes his perilous and brave trip 
through clouds and storm, bearing the mail that Uncle Sam has entrusted in 
his care. 

Again a new land is presented to our eyes. Tall palm trees, a hot beating sun, 
a sea blue and sparkling. We are in Florida. This seems to be an orange grove. 
Rows and rows of the brightly colored fruit are piled up every where we look. 
But who is this supervising the business of packing them into crates? She is 
a woman, tall and dark, and we think we have seen her before. Yes, we have. 
It is Bertha Williams. She has become owner of a large fruit farm in the south 
and spends all of her time raising oranges and bananas. 

Now what can this be. A great crowd of people. All shouting and waving their 
hands. They are waiting for someone. He is coming up the street, bowing to 
right and left. Booker Kennedy, he has just been elected the Governor and 
is on his way to the inaugural ceremonies. 

Who is this I see standing On deck of a large ship, named for one of our heroes, 
Lawrence McKinley? She wears a white nurses uniform, now I see it is our 
friend, Helen Cloud. She is assisting Dr. Broadus Jackson in his large hospital. 
Now as I venture on down the road I glance up at the neon signs, I see Miss 
Gladys Lockett. Owner of the largest night club in New York City. I walk on 
down the street to get I'efreshed and as I look up I see a great orchestra, then 
when I look up at the leader, he looks very familiar at least he has turned 
so that I can see him. Ah, the pianist also looks familiar. It is none other than 
Eddie Sandford taking Harry James place with his trumpet and Leslie Amos 
is taking Hazel Scott's place at the piano.

(continued) 



I see some one coming down the lane, she is dressed very line. Who can it be? 
At last we have learned. It is none other than Miss E. C. Tentman, a model 
for the Davis and Prince incorporation. As I go back to the third counter in 
the store I hear a great laugh, it sounds very familiar. Now I see some one at 
work behind the desk. It is none other than Miss Opal Richardson, who is the 
manager of the ladies department.

As I pass by a great Naval Training Base, I see a group of sailors, then I hear 
a voice, then I look back and guess who I see, Captain Wallace White, giving 
commands to the Blue Jackets. 

As I ventured into Hollywood, I glanced up at the lights flashing in front of 
the Paramount Theatre. I saw hundreds of people crowding around triyng 
to get in, I thought that I would go up and see what was the rush. As I stepped 
into the crowd and glanced up to see what was playing. I didn't believe my 
eyes at first but when I looked the second time I knew that it was true, it read; 
Starring, "Helen Satcher and Henry C. Tentman in the Dignified Mademois- 
elle." I walked on into the theatre and finally I found a seat. I saw to my 
amazement, Mi«s Easier Ledford being awarded the purple heart for her 
bravery in rescuing fifty children out of a burning hospital where she was head 
nurse. 

As I drive on to Washington, D. C, to have a chat with the President of these 
U. S., who is none other than Herman Williams. I see that he has a new sec- 
retary who I recollect as being Miss Irene Moore. 

After the show I decided to go home and read the newspaper. I glanced at 
the headlines and guess what I saw: Cornelius Jones on his way to the White 
House to make a speech and his wife, Daphalena Walker Jones, accompanied 
him. I turned on my radio. I heard two familiar voices before the song had 
ended and guess who it was? None other than Drucilla Turner and Lucille 
Gardner.

The seventh grade has begun what has proved to be a very prosperous year. 
We elected as our home room mother, Mrs. Lillie Billups. We buy war stamps 
weekly. The class buying the larger amount of stamps by the end of the year 
will be given a "VICTORY PARTY" by our home room teacher, Miss Jack- 
son. 

Dollie Murry has been our honor student since school started. 
As a gift of appreciation, we the seventh grade, sent Mr. J. N. Kendall a small 
gift for Christmas. On our social calendar we have sponsored one social and 
an amateur program. 

We are very sorry to announce the loss of one of our best members in the 
class, E. C. Cole. He is making his new home in Delaware. 

Our class began the year with thirty-one members. Out of that number we 
have lost only four. May the rest of us remain together to accomplish greater 
things. 



The sixth grade began this year with an enrollment of twenty-five students. 
We welcome Betty Joe Henderson at the beginning of the second semester 
from the fifth grade. 

At the first of the year, our home room teacher was Mr. J. N. Kendall, who 
later had to enter the armed forces. To show our appreciation to him, the sixth 
grade buy war stamps every week. Our war slogan is "BUY BONDS T. N. T. 
(Today and not tomorrow) ." At Christmas time we also remembered him with 
a small gift. Our present home room teacher is Miss Alfreta Jackson, who re- 
cently attended Wilburforce college. 

We elected as our class mother, Mrs. Ethel Ezell, who entertained us at her 
home. The affair proved to be enjoyable. The class has sponsored several en- 
tertaining chappel programs introducing: Patsy Mills, Orange O'Larry, Rosie 
Pickett, and others as songsti esses. Grady Anderson and J. D. Weldon as com- 
edians. On February 25, the class gave a sparkle show in interest of Miss Dor- 
eatha Caddell. contestant for Rosenwald Sweetheart. All of the girls pledged 
their ful support to the "Rosenwald Victory" club, under the supervision of 
Miss F. E. Buchanan.

SOCIETY NEWS 



By IRENE L. MOORE 



The social life at Rosenwald was enriched by the many varied activities given 
by the different organizations. The football boys began the school year with 
much pep, bringing victory over most of the teams of this conference. The 
wholesome and enjoyable socials given after each game, afforded plenty of 
recreation and fun for the visiting teams and our student body. The Annual 
Homecoming Social as usual, was a gala affair, with our charming, MISS 
JACQUELINE DIDLAKE, reigning as queen, along with co-queen, BESSIE 
MAE TYE. 

The seniors came along with a Hallowe'en Carnival and entertained us with 
their spooks and gobblings, in order to boost their queen candidate. 
Cupid played a very important part in Rosenwald this year by taking from 
their midst, MISS ALBERTA LEWIS. She is making her home in Detroit, 
Michigan. 

The Juniors entertained the Seniors with a delicious dinner, displaying a 
beautiful color scheme. After enjoying this dinner all passed to the auditorium 
of Rosenwald and there dance until "wee, wee" hours began. Following this 
exclusive dinner ,the Seniors gave a New Year's Social, welcoming 1944 with 
the highest enthusiasm and danced with the music of Mousy Noe's Orches- 
tra. The Junior and Senior Prom was the Highlight of the season. The girls 
pictured varieties of colors in gowns accompanied by their escorts in full dress 
or formal wear. This was a very pleasant and elaborate affair. 

The Rosenwald chorus has made much progress, during this school year. Their 
voices harmonized beautifully over station WHLN several times. They also 
sang at schools and churches: Loyall High School, Hall High School and Lou- 
ellen Theatre. The churches were the Baptist Church and the Baxter Meth- 
odist Church. The chorus is under the supervision of Mr. J. B. McCormick. 
The Dramatic Club has sponsored several successful programs over WHLN. 
The tops of the features was a play titled, "WHEN A COLORED BOY GOES 
TO WAR." It was written and directed by Mr. J. B. Clemmcns, the director of 
Dramatics. The Dramatic Club began this year by giving the first play titled, 
GIVE ME CREDIT. There are three plays on hand now to be presented be- 
fore the close of this year. 

The girls of the Senior and Junior classes have organized a club that is to co- 
incide with the boys "R" club. This club has a membership of only twelve. 
We have named it the "GIRLS VICTORY X CLUB." 

A farewel party was given by our Principal, in honor of our Senior class pres- 
ident, Henry C. Tentman, who was called to the Army. A patriotic color 
scheme was carried out in decoration, along with the delicious punch and open 
face sandwiches. 

The Girl Reserve Club stepped out to give their annual Sweetheart Contest. 
The sweetheart of Rosenwald for '44 is, MISS M. E. COLE, who raised the 
amount of $36.00. Miss Caddell was not meant to be left far behind so she 
stepped up with the amount of $30.00. We are expecting to have a grand time 
at the affair. We are also looking forward to making this affair the best ever 
given in Rosenwald. The Girl Reserve Club has many aims for the rest of the 
year and I am sure you will be hearing more of the club and its happenings. 
The Senior Class of 1D44 are looking forward to the farewell Social which 
will send them on their way with much happiness and joy.

ROSENWALD SPORTS 

By VERNON LANGFORD 

The Red Devils of 1943-'44 started the gridiron season with a small squad un- 
der Coach J. N. Kendall. As the squad was being shaped into one of the best 
prospective teams of the U.C.V.A., Uncle Sam called Coach Kendall to join 
the army. This was indeed a great blow to the spirit of our team but our 
Principal, J. B. Clemmons, was determined that this team would go on, so 
he took over the duties of coach and successfully ended the season by losing 
only to Benham, who won the conference. The schedule for the year follows:

The climax of the Red Devils' success was the crowning of the charming queen 
and co-queen. They paraded from the school to the park and pepped up the 
boys. At the half of the game, Captain Henry C. Tentman presented the queen 
a bouquet of flowers. Then the band formed a "V", which symbolized the spir- 
it ot our team as well as the spirit of our nation. After the game the queen 
was crowned. It was a fabulous affair. The co-queen took part in the ceremony. 
Ail Conference honors were awarded Captain Henry C. Tentman, Lawrence 
McKinley, Cornelius Jones, and Winifred Didlake. Honorable mention list 
included, Dallas Blue, Herman Williams, and Eddie Sandford. Lawrence Mc- 
Kinley was voted the most outstanding player of the year and received the 
gold football donated by the Principal. 

BASKETBALL 

When the hardwood season came ,Coach Clemmons began training his boys 
for their first game with Lynch in which we were defeated 27-12. However, 
we made a terific comeback by defeating Pineville 56-12 and Middlesboro 
31-19. 

In the tournament, which was held at Lynch, the Red Devils were runners- 
up by defeating Lynch 19-13 and losing to Benham in the finals 41-37. 
Players making the all conference team were Lawrence McKinley, Dallas 
Blue, and Herman Williams. Newt McCravy and Booker Kennedy were plac- 
ed on the Honorable Mention list. High point man of the season was Lawrence 
McKinley.
